I have known Kate as a teacher for several years. She brings such a down to earth focus and ease to yoga and practice that I absolutely connect with and it’s obvious that others do too.  Her beauty, grace, passion and brilliance are an example to all of us.  Through her I have learned to live with compassion for myself and others.  Kate is a natural teacher and a constant inspiration.  Teachers offer so much of themselves for very little reward, other than helping us grown through our practice.  Kate has helped me work to accept my limitations while still pushing myself to grow and learn, without sacrificing form to achieve the appearance of proficiency.  She inspires me with her athleticism, combined with grace, and readings to help me think outside myself and grow beyond my own self-limiting thoughts.

I can’t pinpoint the exact moment that Kate and I met, but I can guarantee that from the moment Kate came into my life, I have shifted the lens in which I view each day, and often times each moment. Kate’s subtle way of sharing her wisdom is what makes her magic, the way she moves, and sprinkles insight into her teachings has left me coming back for more. I originally signed up for Kate’s mindfulness series, with the intention of having “something to do” on my Wednesday evening, and found myself convincing my coworkers and friends to be registered for the next session. Kate’s voice is soft, her transparency and vulnerability welcomes everyone in her space to begin to crack the shell of their own armour and her guidance of the physical practice of yoga is nurturing to every body with any level of experience. Thank you Kate for coming into my life and reminding me that being mindful is a daily practice.
